Poetry Books by Edith Wharton

Edith Wharton Books, Edith Wharton poetry book The Demanding Dead Authors: Edith Wharton
Publisher: Peter Owen Limited
Published Date: 2007
Categories: Fiction
With eight outstanding ghost stories, this collection highlights Edith Wharton's ability to switch genres seemingly without effort. The same literary genius evident in her best known works such as The Age of Innocence, Ethan Frome, and The House of Mirth is here dedicated to giving the reader a damned good scare. Stories such as "Kerfol" (adjudged by aficionados to be Wharton's best ghost story) and "Pomegranate Seed" are perfect illustrations of consummately crafted horror fiction. Wharton's vivid sense of the supernatural betrays her deeper anxieties about the claustrophobia of domestic life and the pain of a failing relationship.

When Professor Linyard came back from his holiday in the Maine woods the air of rejuvenation he brought with him was due less to the influences of the climate than to the companionship he had enjoyed on his travels. To Mrs. Linyard's observant eye he had appeared to set out alone; but an invisible traveller had in fact accompanied him, and if his heart beat high it was simply at the pitch of his adventure: for the Professor had eloped with an idea.

Edith Wharton Books, Edith Wharton poetry book The Ghost-feeler Authors: Edith Wharton
Publisher: Peter Owen Limited
Published Date: 1996
Categories: Fiction
Edith Wharton described herself as someone with an 'intense Celtic sense of the supernatural'. As a 'ghost-feeler', she wrote a number of chilling tales that objectify this sense of unease, even terror. Many of these stories appear here for the first time since their original magazine publication. With themes of vampirism, isolation and hallucination, they reflect the author's internalized fears and her unhappy experience of marriage, and point to a world far removed from the comfort and urbane elegance of her famous novels.

Edith Wharton Books, Edith Wharton poetry book The World Over Authors: Edith Wharton
Publisher: Caven Press
Published Date: 2013-01
Categories: Fiction
The World Over was Wharton's last collection of stories, and typifies her elegant style and a feminist perspective that was ahead of its time. The collection includes one of her best-loved stories Roman Fever, which features two middle-aged American women who are visiting Rome with their daughters, and whose past conceals rivalry and jealousy. Wharton's novels are characterized by a subtle use of dramatic irony. Having grown up in upper-class pre-World War I society, she became one of its most astute critics. In such works as The House of Mirth and The Age of Innocence she employed both humour and profound empathy to describe the lives of New York's upper class and the vanishing of their world in the early years of the 20th century.

Edith Wharton Books, Edith Wharton poetry book The Ghost Stories of Edith Wharton Authors: Edith Wharton
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Published Date: 2009-11-24
Categories: Fiction
One might not expect a woman of Edith Wharton's literary stature to be a believer of ghost stories, much less be frightened by them, but as she admits in her postscript to this spine-tingling collection, "...till I was twenty-seven or -eight, I could not sleep in the room with a book containing a ghost story." Once her fear was overcome, however, she took to writing tales of the supernatural for publication in the magazines of the day. These eleven finely wrought pieces showcase her mastery of the traditional New England ghost story and her fascination with spirits, hauntings, and other supernatural phenomena. Called "flawlessly eerie" by Ms. magazine, this collection includes "Pomegranate Seed," "The Eyes," "All Souls'," "The Looking Glass," and "The Triumph of Night."
